A Voiceless Call

I see you lying there.

Your words call to me

but

you have no voice.

My mind begins to spin

with curiosity, predictions, wonderings-

a desire to dive back into your world.

My brain battles responsibility vs. escape.

I grab you and flip open to the bookmark.

I settle into my chair and your words fill my mind’s eye.

Your voiceless call is triumphant again.

Reading is one of my favorite things in life. Once I get absorbed into a book, I really can’t stop. So I decided to be mindful in the moment before I pick up a book to begin reading. This noticing let the above words flow off of my pen.
